To remember and honor a courageous young man who fought but lost his battle with cancer.
To raise awareness, because there are too many children suffering from this terrible disease.
To inspire our local kids who are in the midst of their battles.
To raise funds for pediatric cancer clinical trials at Connecticut Children's.
So that no parent has to hear the words
"your child has cancer."
Cancer is the number one cause of death by disease among children.
1 in every 285 children will be diagnosed with cancer.
43 children per day are expected to be diagnosed with cancer.
Only 4% of federal government cancer research funding goes to study pediatric cancer.

Because of leg reconstruction surgery, Robby wasn't able to play soccer his senior year. At Avon's last home game, however, the teams arranged for Robby to take the opening kick, then get subbed out.
"Dr. Mike" cared for Robby during his entire 3 1/2 year journey. Here he talks about why he chose pediatric cancer as a profession, and the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Connecticut Children's.
They say people come into our lives for a reason. Their purpose may be to teach us, guide us or even to test us. Like a big brother showing his younger sibling how to navigate through a challenging situation, Robby guided Hunter through the fight for his life.
Robby wanted us to continue his fight, not just for his fellow Avon cancer warriors - Chris, Hannah, Hunter, Kamran, Lauren, and Morgan - but also for a special friend Kyla and all the other children.
Vie for the Kids, Inc.
The Robby Brisco Open is a Vie for the Kids signature fundraising event, and we are honored to help remember a remarkable young man who inspired other patients, fellow students, and the entire town of Avon and beyond.
